COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial IPA brewed with honey.
John Bell Hood was called “Old Wooden Head” by his troops for his tenacity and hard headed-ness. Our ale is just that. Full of hops (how many? we donʼt know) Full of Malt (we shut a whole field down) this extreme gravity beer will not stop until you surrender to itʼs amazing flavor.

3/31/15. 22oz bottle from Five Points, bottled 3/18. Nice orange pour with a perfect khaki head, pretty good lacing. Big, pungent aroma, loads of candied grapefruit and pine, enough malt to back without overwhelming me, and just a touch of booze showing as it warms. Good flavor as well, nice bitterness, just enough malt to balance, what would put it over the top for me is more hop character and flavor, a little more new age. This is old school loads of candied grapefruit and pine, reminds of Hopslam in a way. I dig it!

Hazy golden pour with a frothy white head. Big sweet candy like aroma but a nice punch of citrus. Flavors were sweet, candied hops, bitter hops, big fruits. Viscous mouthfeel with lighter carbonation. Lingering bittersweet finish. Overall a pretty solid big IPA without much balance but tasty nonetheless. Always glad to see another bomber addition from BHB. Rock on!

On tap at The Porter in L5P last night... Hazy orange/yellow with one of the most impressive, sustained heads I've seen. Full aroma of honey, pine, and citrus hops, body is suprisingly smooth for the abv, bitterness is not overpowering. Overall a fantastically balanced brew.

On tap at Hunahpu ’14. Orange pour with little head. Aroma of resiny citrus, pine. Tastes citrus, grass, honey. Little boozy. Nice. 7.4

Comes out of the tap a beautiful clear golden amber with a fine-bubbled buff head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma is tres hoppy, resiny and evergreen with a firm fruity underpinning. Flavor floods the taste buds with evergreen hops, subtle fruity sweetness that nicely balances the hoppy bitterness, notes of green wood, citrus and malt. Superb! Firm texture is lively and fizzy, leaving a persistent tingle that gets even the lips into the act. Don’t be a wooden head - down a glass today.

Clear amber with only the slightest chill head. Sticky head. Nice maltiness. Rich without being cloying. Hops are aggressive with a citrus rind finish but not offensive. Really solid DIPA.

jrob21 (2801) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Growler from ale yeah. Pours a dark orange with very little head. Aroma is a little spicey and a lot of grass and hay. Full bodied flavor. Sticky resin up front. Smooth throughout. Finish is a little pine butte twitch a touch of citrus very light. Hops here are a little subdued but a nice drink nonetheless.

deyholla (7588) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2013
On tap. Pours a clear amber gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of resinous pine with a touch of honey and sweet grain. Flavor begins with sweet grains and honey but finish is boozy with strong pine and some resin.

On tap at the brewery. Hazy yellow. Oranges and grapefruit. Sweet at first, but finishes with a lingering bitter taste. Sticky and tastes very full. Makes me want more. I think its actually called old wooden head. Very good
